I want this dog. Look at his eyes.
I love it!
Checking again that this is NOT a photo.
Great job Edward!

Kim VanDerhoek said...

Wonderful job capturing this dogs expression! Great job!

Sheila said...

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah......... wow...you're on a roll Edward!

Annie Salness said...

I came from DSFDF to comment, but couldn't resist this face! What a sweet expression.

Manon Doyle said...

Perfect Edward! His eyes are so sweet!

Dana Cooper Fine Art said...

Wow Edward! You captured it all...the wonderful, almost concerned expression in the eyes and the resigned pose.
Your details are sharp where they need to be and soft where they don't...great job!

Sheila Wedegis said...

You got this one perfect!!!I had been thinking of painting him but you did such a great job!! Wonderful!!!!

Angela Elledge said...

Just wonderful, you've captured that wonderful longing look beautifully!

Tammy Hext said...

This painting got my four year old off the couch and over to the computer. He is yearning for a dog. Great painting!

James Parker said...

LOL, Edward...they've said it all...you outdid yourself. "Laidback" or Tulsi, Maggie Mayers dog is "Waiting" for his Alpo at WTTW Art. And linked to your site and some polish sausage. Thanks again, Ed

Love those soft edges, Edward. Beautiful, soulful work...

Teresa said...

I love this doggy!

Michelle said...

Ooh I love this Edward! I saw this on James' blog and loved the expression. You captured it so nicely!

Charlene Brown said...

Once again, I've waiting too long to comment on your painting before everyone else says it all first! I feel the reproachful look is directed at me...

Kschenke said...

Isn't it funny how dogs can look so bored?

Megha Chhatbar said...

He is so adorable! :) Wonderful!

Catherine Jeffrey said...

Wow, you've certainly captured his "doggy attitude". Most of the day my dog sits around like this, being bored, waiting for someone to entertain him! I love the composition as well. Great picture. And what a great idea to paint an idea from words. May have to try it out!

Catherine Jeffrey said...

Well, I just read through the complete "Windows to the word art" and realize one can write, snap photos or paint! I guess I'm off to paint a pug.

Dean H. said...

My friend, to put it simply...Outstanding!!

Gwen Bell said...

What a soulful expression. You captured it perfectly, Edward!

Vern Schwarz said...

Absolutely beautiful Ed. I love the eyes and nose and the front paws.

Diana Marshall said...

Brilliant painting, that face, who wouldn't love him!

Okay Edward...how much? I absolutely love this painting of Tulsi! You captured her expression. It's beautiful! :)

Vicente Herrero said...

Hello,Edward,I am a Spanish painter and could not have resisted to do a commentary.
For it tender that are the dogs what`s you paint.
My English......sorry.

Edward, beautiful, what dog lover would not love this? I've also left a message on your girl at the beach with dog, which really has the wow factor.
